  • Hi

    I am noob, using wordpress site for first time and it went well till last week. I wanted to have a sub-domain where I can post some other stuff. I started getting errors. So i took back up of my site and saved on my desktop.

    I’ve been trying to setup wordpress again using old files, I cannot do it. So i tried to upload the files through FTP and I get the below error message-

    Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required ‘/home/u337592317/public_html/wp-includes/load.php’ (include_path=’.:/opt/php-5.5/pear’) in /home/u337592317/public_html/wp-settings.php on line 19.

    Well is there any other way I can extract the articles/posts from my previous install and make a fresh install and get the posts/data back?

    Thank you in advance..

  • First, Check your .htaccess file. You may have uploaded the one from your local directory which might not(probably won’t) work on your live server.

    Also, check your permissions and ensure folders are 755 and most files are 644. I say most since you may want more restrictive permissions, like 444, on sensitive files like .htaccess or wp-config.php. You may have bad permissions on some of the uploaded files.

    If that doesn’t work you can always use the WordPress export tool to export all the content and media from your old site and then use the import tool on the new site to import the .xml file you generated with the export.
